Update: Eight Kassams on Tuesday

Received by email:
During the day, 7 Qassam missiles caused heavy damage, but no direct casualties. There was no Israeli return fire. The missiles exploded in built-up areas among cars in Sderot, hit a strategic facility south of Ashkelon for the second time in two days and landed in empty ground near Kibbutz Mordecai.

The seventh landed wide of a military camp south of Ashkelon. DEBKAfile reports that Israeli military units can see the Palestinian missile crews, which have fired more than 60 missiles in the month-long 'ceasefire' But prime minister Ehud Olmet has ordered the military to hold its fire, despite the extreme distress of the civilians living around the Gaza border.
